If it's those updates, then yes, a lot of people were having issues with it failing to install and causing BSODs after it installs, people getting stuck in reboot cycles having to reinstall windows etc... kb4054517 is the update that gave me problems, it would always fail to install and take me to a screen after every restart stating that the update failed and was undoing changes. I was able to log back in and was sent back to desktop each time I tried, so I got lucky I guess. I decided to delete all of the files in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download , then disable windows update in services and after I restarted it finished the install and has it listed as installed when I clicked on uninstall updates. I really need to upgrade to Pro for my desktop....

I was under the impression that you didn't have a choice in the matter.

You DO have a choice.

You can disable the Windows Update process on "Services.msc". Windows 10 will never update if you do it, unless you enable it again, of course.

I called customer service because Windows broke after Tuesday's update, they said my only option is to reinstall Windows.

Are you kidding me.

yeah win 10 v1709 build is pretty s***ty. you probably need to go recovery and reset your pc aka reinstall windows. win 10 sucks.

that is why i turn window update to manual or disable, so i control when i do update. and backup via 3rd party disk image tool after each successful update.

After login I would just get a black screen, safe mode wouldn't load windows explorer either. I guess this happened to a lot of PCs after the creators update.


it is pretty wide spread. you get black screen after win 10 try to update to v1709 and failed. you need to reinstall window.

win 10 sucks.

I f***ing hate this s***.
Since a couple of days ago, every time I plug my DS4 I get a driver error (not ds4windows error, but w10 device error) and I have to uninstall/install the device again.

If you’ve called Windows customer service, you’re not allowed to give anyone advice about computers.

Someone has never had to call in to get past a "this key has already been used" error during activation. When you've actually worked on some computers you can talk.

Did they say a complete reinstall is necessary or did they say that you just need to use the recovery option in the OS?

As for not updating...
